My third book

I am finding by writing this book there is a character that keeps moving into the lead. I know he will be gone in the beginning about 8 chapters and others will take his place.

What I want to know have you changed your main characters as the story begans to grow.

Life in the Fast Lane - A Fresh New Author

It may take me awhile to come to a decision, but when I do it, I jump in with both feet. No tipping a toe in to check the water, just dive in and swim for your life. The decision to become an eBook author was much the same. I wanted to create a tangible product that someone could hold in their hand and was a little nervous about having my hard work in a digital form.

I had tried to pitch my masterpiece to more agents then I could keep track of and fell flat on my face. My story was…

THROUGH TROUBLE EYES

Do you see the world through troubled eyes? I do see the world with troubled eyes...I can never go back to the innocents I once had. It’s better now as I have learned that the soul I have within me can’t be  lied to so easily as it once could.  I’ve once took things as face value. That love was love and trust was trust. I can’t tell you the day and time that all that became blurred. I guess when you start asking yourself it really doesn’t matter anyway. I often wonder if I would even go back…

Guest Post: Richard Hebert

Okay, here is a fun guy, witty and sharp. I had the pleasure of meeting Richard at the annual Florida Writer's Association banquet. We shared a few laughs and talked shop (writers do that, ya know). So, I tell Richard that I write fiction, mostly fantasy. He tells me he writes metafiction.
What? What is that?

Bad Times for Human Beings

Actually, no this isn't about dystopic fiction but dystopic fact.  I've just had notice today that our benevolent British government (and I voted for them) will be reassessing me as part of their campaign to prove that there is no such thing as illness or disability so forget all those years paying National Insurance just exactly in case you should fall ill.  It's a grim time, and some of the stories of hardship, desperation and even deaths as a result of the cruelty of the policy and the…

However, like all bad experiences, it is possible to turn this experience into good by developing compassion and empathy for others who have been through this experience. Many people feel that bringing meaning to a traumatic experience is a path to healing. When I turn a negative experience into a…
